Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Has the gearbox fault warning message come on or has the check engine light come on? So even using the manual side of the shifter the vehicle still will not move forward? V6 or V8 engine?

V6
There has been no warning indicators

traditionally putting the car in drive has been sluggish.
when I put it to the manual side it lunges forward and then stalls.
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 13 years ago
Sounds like a mechanical problem in the transmission like a sticking valve in the valve body. You can go to a shop that has experience with transmissions like a trans shop or dealer. The transmission in your S Type is actually a Ford transmission so the repair cost would not be as much as a Jag trans. A Jasper reman may be a good option for you as it's about $2800.00 and has a 3 year 100,000 mile warranty. The labor to rplace the transmission is about 7 hours.

Thanks for the help.
I had it picked up yesterday and of course drive was funtional.
My gut is that there is an electronic issue surrounding the transmission.
As you had indicated there was no electronic warnings.

I'll have them check it out.

Thanks for you help.
